Frida Kahlo is an artist from Mexico. She was born in 1907 and died in 1954. She is known for her self- portraits, Frida Kahlo said that she paints herself as she is alone so often. In her self portraits she always puts facial hair and a mono brow on herself.

Frida Kahlo inspires me because she was in a severe accident involving a bus and a car. She was in a full body cast for 3 months. She fully recovered however she would have relapses of extreme pain, which continued for the rest of her life. Considering all of this, she continued to be creative and didn't make any excuses to not paint. 

I also love reading her quotes to motivate and inspire me. Here is my favourite quote by Frida Kahlo.
  • "I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes my head without any other consideration."

Who is your inspiration? I would love to know.

On Tuesday 12th May, I went to London! I went for an interview with a company to volunteer abroad. While I was there I also wanted to explore. This was my first time going to London completely alone and I wanted to make the most of it. 

As soon as I got off the train, I made my way to the 'Wellcome Collection' museum/ gallery. They had some very peculiar pieces of artwork.

I then went to the hostel I was staying at. I shared the room with two lovely ladies. p.s. I recommend staying in hostels as 1. They are cheap and 2. You meet the most fascinating characters ever!

After having a little rest, I then made my way to Camden Market. I have heard so much about Camden market from London bloggers and really wanted to check it out.
